    Fabulous @ its Best

    Most of the stories are unputdownable which take us to the foothills of the Himalayas. The stories have the fragrance of the Dehra breeze which fills us with an inexplicable sense of oneness with nature and childhood. And if you are a Ruskin Bond fan, I'm sure this book will be a priced posseesion in your collection. Short stories which takes us back to our school days on a 'hot summer afternoon'.

    What to say about flipkart??
    As usual the delivery is at its best...
